Message:
Is it possible to put the R/T TB on my 5.2L. I was wondering if anyone has done this and how much does the new TB cost? Can I still put a TB spacer on after? Will I get any noticable HP difference?

98 5.2L custom intake, Flowmaster muffler

you already have a 5.9 TB on your 5.2 (they are the same)

go to dodgetrucks.org. they are trying to do a group buy on the F&B billet TB's the 50mm (the best for a 318) is $350 shipped.

thoes TB spacers dont do a thing for hp. its been proven on the dyno.

Eric, did you pay through the nose for it? And is Jules as charming as he is rumoured to be?

Jared, i gained mostly lowend torque, up to about 3000 rpm. i got my TB from magnum performance.

Lesley, Jules (the owner of mag performance) is a complete A$$ hole!!!! I dont know how he is still in busness. at first he was real nice and informative, but after he got my money he was a dik.
i payed over a THOUSAND dollers for my TB (what i was smoking i dont know) at the time he was the only one i knew that was doing TB's. he told me it was well worth the $$$ and it will be like a totaly differant truck. well it gave me more power, but no where neat 1k worth.

get either a F&B or a hughes TB. the F&B is a little more money, but its made a little better and is a totally billet piece. the hughes is just a modified stock TB.

oh yea, i almost forgot. it took almost a YEAR to get my TB after i payed for it!!
i wouldnt buy a quart of oil from magnum performance!

Eric
